Ecco Newbie
 
First
I just want to say that this looks like a nice forum with nice people which is a good thing for the www. Also hello to every1
I just have a statement and some questions which maybe could be replied too
I am helping friend "ecco" a 2006 Toyota Prius. My friend has already made aero wheel caps out pizza bake pans invereted to wheel covers (found mod on www)Okay next (my friend) is torn on aero kits from Sigma auto aka hybrid effects or self made like other "ecco" people.
Anyway
Does any1 know if rear wheel skirts are better if they are flush with rest of body style kinda like the Honda insight which are flush??? Next do local tire dealers carry "narrow" type tires???
The sigma front bumpers kits by either hybrid effects or A Coro look nice in pics but has any1 tried them out yet????
Thanks TexasCotton

Welcome to the forum.

I'll chime in on the skirt question: the smoother the better. You want them to stick out as little as possible. Also worth noting that the tire/wheel arch gap is already really good (small) on the Prius. Because of that, skirts may only be marginally more effective than going with full wheel covers.

Not trying to discourage your friend, but just keep things in perspective (don't be disappointed if he doesn't detect a giant improvement at the pump).
